A remarkable hybrid!
A truly magnificent string!
The Evah Pirazzi Bass Strings are all around the most complete hybrid on the market. The pizzicato sound is fat, dark and rich. Arco playing is easy, clear and has a fundamental sound; which allows the instrument to do all the talking. Pirastro really outdid themselves with Evah Pirazzi Bass Strings. They do not roll like Obligatos, and are capable of producing a thunderous amount of sound that will fill a room of any size.
From Pirastro Website:
The tremendous success of Pirastro's Obligato strings for double bass encouraged them to further develop double bass strings with a synthetic core.
The result is a new double bass string set Evah Pirazzi BASS. This set is a hybrid set, suitable for both Arco and Pizzicato playing. Evah Pirazzi strings offer outstanding tuning stability, a very short playing-in-time and an astonishing resistance to rolling. Similar to the Obligato bass strings, Evah Pirazzi BASS Strings are resistant to changes in humidity and temperature. All strings are wound with chrome steel and smoothly polished.
The big, powerful, warm and round sound of the strings is combined with an accentuated low frequency spectrum and an exceptional resonance with a good sustain. The response is quick allowing for easy left and right hand articulation. Due to the phenomenal projection of the Evah Pirazzi BASS strings the beautiful richness of the range of colors and nuances can be heard even in big concert halls. The development of these bass strings was aimed at producing a sound that is as close to gut strings as possible.
Evah Pirazzi BASS is an ideal string for musicians playing both Arco and Pizzicato. First and foremost the bow response is excellent and when playing pizzicato the long sustain fully and freely evolves.
